**Now over 350K Check-ins**

If you live alone and want the reassurance of someone checking in, Snug is for you. It's a daily check-in service for people living alone.

Every morning, Snug checks in on you at your selected time. When you check in by pressing the big green check mark, you will receive a quote of the day. Your emergency contacts can optionally be notified, at your and their discretion, that you have successfully checked in.

If you don't check in by your selected daily time, a Snug dispatcher will call to check on you. If you still don't respond, your emergency contacts will be alerted and then emergency services will be called for a wellness check.

If you have a fall or an emergency, you can use Snug to call your personal dispatcher (on dispatch plan).

Snug is a way for independent seniors to feel peace of mind. Think of it like a modern Medical Alert or Life Alert that is designed to be friendly, positive, and proactive.

Snug is popular with people who have medical concerns including diabetics, heart disease, stroke history, or epilepsy. A lot of people use it in combination with medication or pill reminders.


Snug has a free plan where emergency contacts are alerted if someone doesn't check in at their regular time.

There is also a dispatch plan, either $9.99/month or $99/year, where a personal dispatcher will call if someone misses their check in. If necessary, the dispatcher will coordinate a wellness check to the last known location.

You can call your dispatcher for help any time of the day if you have an emergency.

Hello! I’ve been upgraded to have nicer spacing for smaller phones. And I am also explaining things better with clearer instructions. Last but not least, I have made some adjustments on when I notify emergency contacts.

Have a Snug Day!

Simple, straightforward and helpful

Living alone can have one drawback: what if you got hurt or sick and no one knew? Rather than take time out of my day, or my friend or family member's day with a daily phone call, the app lets me push a button on my phone once a day. As long as I can open the app and touch the big green button, all is well. If I can't get to my phone or don't push the button, my family member or friend will be notified.
I choose the time to check in that fits my schedule. I can pause it if I am going on vacation.
This is the perfect app for my purposes. It does one thing. It isn't full of ads and nonsense. It just works.

Wow, perfect for me

So simple and easy every day. You set your desired check-in time. Notifications quietly pop up on login screen, so it’s first thing you are reminded when looking at your phone. You click on icon, and BIG circle appears; one touch, and you’re checked in. At bottom of screen there “Call for Help” option; iconography is different and smaller than the circle so you won’t inadvertently hit the wrong one. AND if a stray finger hits Call for Help, it asks if you’re sure - I touched by mistake once so I know. As check-in time approaches, audible notifications remind you. A simple, easy daily routine.

SNUG- a great answer!!

I have had two different friends living alone that have endured medical problems in which they were unable to reach a phone for help. It was 2-3 days later before they were discovered. I am in excellent health, but living alone myself, this has always been a concern of mine. Anything can happen! Snug has solved that issue. With a daily check, I know I will not have to go through the hours of not knowing if anyone will find me. Snug has relieved my mind.
